Hello Friends!Countdown to Christmas: 17 days
I am so happy today because I finished knitting the hat for my boyfriend for Christmas this morning! I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick wool in the black color. I used size 9 mm needles in the circular needles form. I casted on 48 stitches because he was 22" and it was two stitches for every inch so I did a couple inches extra for wiggle room.
|The finished hat!|
Cast on 2 stitches for every inch of the person's head.
Then k2, p2 all the way around until ribbing is the length you want.
K all the way around until hat measures 6" - 7" then start to decrease
to decrease divide your hat up into groups of 8 stitches and put markers. Decrease by knitting two stitches together a two stitches to the marker and knit the rest of the stitches. Do this until you arrive at 4 stitches and cut your yarn about 6" then pull the yarn through the stitches with a crochet hook or needle then weave the remaining yarn down through the top of the hat.

Hope he likes it!
I wish you all a great day.
